Mukul Roy Quits Trinamool After Meeting With Top BJP Leaders

Mukul Roy Quits Trinamool After Meeting With Top BJP Leaders”

Estranged Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Mukul Roy on Monday announced his decision to quit the party. "I will formally resign after the Durga Puja vacation".

Since the Durga Puja fervour is very important to the people of Bengal and everybody is in a festive mood, I will disclose my reasons later when I submit my resignation, said Roy.

On September 17, Mukul Roy was removed from the position of the national vice-president of the Trinamool Congress party when the party restructured its internal committee. "(There is) no question of quitting TMC", he said.

Speaking to reporters, Mukul Roy said that he will resign from the party after the end of the Durga Puja.

The announcement comes as a big jolt to Mamata Banerjee even as the Bharatiya Janata Party is making rapid inroads in West Bengal, which has traditionally shunned the right-wing ideology.

Reports of Mukul Roy cosying up to the BJP leadership were believed to have riled Mamata Banerjee and the TMC leadership following which he was removed as the chairman of Parliament's standing committee on transport and tourism.

The Trinamool Congress is expected to hold a press conference at 1 pm today. "It looks like the heart and head are drifting apart".
